Minor victory thread

#1
We have a thread for Epic wins. We have a thread for rants and minor rants. But unless my necro and search powers fail me I can't find a Minor victory thread akin to the minor rant thread.

So I'm making one.

My minor victory. After having a nasty virus on my PC (which included key loggers, root kits, and your general malware) I finally decided I didn't need windows on this PC anymore and have reinstalled Slackware.

It has taken me all morning to remember even what tiny bit I once knew but I am now operational with a new slackware install complete with wireless networking and opera installed.

Like I said, minor victory.

I'm debating between a baked potato or mom's spaghetti for lunch. Either way I win!

I just caught up on the last couple of Lost eps I missed so I could catch tonight's episode. Glee!

I went into a negativity spiral when I experienced some nasty, sudden writer's block this afternoon. But after going for a walk, I remembered that I'm absurd to think I'm an empty person with nothing interesting to say and got halfway through a new chapter. :) Yay! I still think it's still a bunch of mediocre silliness, but at least I am plowing forward.

After months and months of buying the beer for the apartment, my roomie finally bought a 12 pack himself. I am reaping the benefits.

Cross post with the minor victory rant thread since it pretty much fits as both, but is not deserving of it's own thread.
.... maybe a blog, i should consider that somedays.


I recently took upon a couple of partners and a project to start a business. I'm currently in the process of trying to put together the webpage graphics and site design. I feel this has potential to be a big thing for me. It's also a fuck ton of work when for hopefully a future payoff when what I really need is pay right now. The website domain has been registered, the business paperwork should be filed tomorrow. I would be intimidated by the scope of this project if I wasn't so damned busy trying to make it happen. Which is a good thing, since if I had time to think about it I probably would talk myself out of it.

no I'm not sharing a lot of details about what this venture is right now, but I will be soon with luck.

-edit-

As a side note this is the first time I have designed a website and done the graphics work purely in linux (slackware) instead of having windows programs to fall back up. Also both a rant and a victory.

Picked up The Terminator, Terminator 2, Alien, and Aliens on the way home from the dentist this morning.

I just hustled a possum out of a doorway where it was sheltering from the rain, hissing at pedestrians. Got him shifted to a more arboreal location, where he can hiss at the bums. *wry smile*

In the midst of all the shit this week has already thrown at me, I take a moment of solace in Zapp's sweet potato chips.

No, because you see, the turkey and the dill chips... they taste good. :smug:

The girl I have a crush on called me cute.

Rather, she called the picture of me at 3 years old cute, but I'll take what I can get.

I had a few beers whilst playing Warhammer 40k with a friend of mine tonight, and met his adorable Corgi Arwen. Good night, good night.

My girlfriend and I will actually be able to spend some time together next week, as in more than a couple of hours a week.

Having the "Mini Forumites" thread right above this, I looked at this thread and read "Mini Vibrator Thread," is something wrong with me?

I just had a really nice fart. I feel like a good amount of pressure was released. It wasn't stinky or one of those gross farts that you regret, but it was powerful. There was a force to it, is what I'm saying.

Was it one of those farts where you can actually see and feel your stomach shrink? Those are the most satisfying! :awesome:

not exactly, but it was kind of like a good poop where you just feel like there's less in there and it's just a little bit cleansed.
